It is 5:10pm, and I’m drinking sweet, sweet coffee from a stainless steel tumbler. It is 87 degrees. Leila has bare legs and bare feet.
All is well.
Our flights came in exactly on time. All of our luggage arrived- all six checked bags, and all 4 carry-ons. Leila even managed to sleep nicely in her bassinet on and off throughout the international flights. We LOVE Air France. And generally speaking, people couldn’t have been nicer. Having crossed the oceans with a 5 month-old, we’re feeling triumphant and relieved. We’re more than grateful that everything went as well as it did. We’ll do it again, though not in a heart beat. I think we’ll stay awhile. Yes, maybe two months.
Perhaps the best part of being here so far was getting to meet the newest Sundararajan, James and Anita’s baby girl, Judith. At 5.5 lbs she’s so tiny that holding her is like holding feathers. Leila looks like a big chunk-er next to her, and Leila is a pretty average size for 5 months. Judith has lots of hair, and big alert eyes. She is darling.
